    I just got back from Santiago Peak....there were a few rough spots but nothing the Tacoma couldn't handle with the rear end locked. I am quite impressed with the 2WD coming from a locked front and rear early model Bronco. I heard a rubbing sound a few times but cannot find any evidence of tire rub anywhere.

    Any help where to look.

    I have had a rubbing sound going slow when my wheel is turned to the lock....It is a tinny scrapeing sound and it has been narrowed down to the dust covers or backing plates on the inside of my front wheels.These are pie-plate shaped sheet metal covers that you can see if you crawl under your truck and look at the inside of the wheel.

    Do you still have the mudflaps still on? That'd be my first guess.
